Spring is Coming – Mothers Day & a Special Treat from Debenhams Flowers
It’s our three year wedding anniversary this month and when we married my bouquet was made completely of yellow roses. I love roses, I love lilies, I love tulips, I love orchids, this is why it was so hard when Debenhams Flowers said that I could choose one of their beautiful Mothers Day Flowers to review on our blog. I simply couldn’t choose so I gave them a couple of options and asked that they make the decision for me.
I was delighted when the result was this gorgeous Sunshine Lily & Rose bouquet. It seems so appropriate to have yellow roses in our home again this month. I love the pop of yellow in Spring, yellow in Daffodils, yellow rapeseed fields. I just love having some bright and beautiful colour to awaken the dawn of Spring.
They come beautifully presented so you can display them as they come or you can take them out of the bouquet and arrange them yourself. I prefer them in the white wrapper but for the purpose of this review and so you can see what I mean I also took some photos without. Obviously this bouquet will be absolutely stunning once the Lilies come out to bloom. I fed the flowers with the plantfood provided and am just eagerly waiting.
As you can see my favourite vase was infact broken not too long ago by a child who shall remain nameless, but my Mum found me this vintage one for 50p at a charity shop, as I think she was sick of my putting flowers in jugs. Having to photo my vintage vase (which is not my taste at all) made me aware that I really need to buy myself a new one. If you have the same problem you can add a beautiful *ahem* tasteful vase onto your order when you order from Debenhams Flowers or order one of the beautiful bouquets that comes present in a gift bag.
If you’re like me, I love Lilies but react to them being in the house, I discovered that if you just cut off the pollen sacs, it stops me having an allergic response to them and also prevents any staining that the pollen sacs cause, to the flower or anywhere else. Win, win!
